KIRKUS REVIEW

Courtesy of plastic surgery, private eye Sam Marlow gets to look like Bogart and it doesn't take too much Spade work to identify any of the faces or bodies around. Fenady (veteran film and tv scriptwriter) will do it for you--he's got a memory bank like Films on File. Philip Marlowe, sorry, Sam Marlow gets a case involving some sapphires which prove to be the hottest rocks around, resulting in the death of Horst Borsht, wanted by Mustafa Hakim and a Commodore Anastas whose daughter becomes Sam's Angel. You remember her. Then there's Wolf Zinderneuf--Zinderneuf of course was the place where everyone in Beau Geste was killed--Zinderneuf who talks like Otto Preminger and served more time than the Bird Man of Alcatraz. Got it? A funny valentine for the industry, or just a shamusly silly novelty item?
